Last week’s FOCUS lesson was about taking a chance to get the results you want. Shortly after that message was sent, I received a message from a great friend about what the lesson meant to her.
There are tough jobs out there and jobs and goals we sometimes – maybe oftentimes – think impossible. But then you say yes to a challenge, and you find that your capacity to meet that challenge was always there.
Fictional president Jed Bartlet said it best in The West Wing, “[...] but every time we think we have measured our capacity to meet a challenge, we look up and we’re reminded that that capacity may well be limitless.”
Any challenge is not without the mini-challenges. It can become frustration, discouragement and failures. But then you do it, and it goes well. My friend wrote and said, “I was willing, did it, and received much support and realized I was supposed to take on this.”
Isn’t it amazing how our life challenges always seem to happen and appear at the right moment? The key question is: are you listening?
